Mountain Biking Kernersville MTB park

****   Add a review
#40 of 534 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#734 in the world

Trail has been built in phases. As of Jan. 2018, Trail is a 3.5 mile cross country loop. Some small additions are still planned by the trail crew. Trail is rated intermediate. Advanced sections are optional. Trail is tight and twisty and turns back on itself frequently due to the relatively small plot of land. Kernersville Cycling Club runs/manages the park but the land belongs to the town. Trail closes when wet. Trail status can be found on Twitter or at kernersvillecyclingclub.com
Some berms, log pyramids, and a natural creek crossing will greet riders.
Trail is open from dawn to 9 pm - year round.

Rider questions

Q: Can I run on this trail (like I do at Tanglewood) if I run towards the bikers (so I can hop out of the way when they come by)?

    Very fun trail. A few of the features were closed due to damage but other then that the trail is great!

    Great place to go for a quick two laps, one in each direction. This trail packs a lot into a small plot of land. Tight switch backs, wooden features, rock features, a creek crossing and some awesome berms.

    Fun little ride good for advanced beginners. Nothing too technical (that isn't optional). Very flowy. Newer bermy sections getting eroded, but very nicely laid out so that climbs aren't grueling. Hope there will be more to come here!

    Awesome trail! You can go as slow or as fast as you want. I'm a 28-year-old male, average shape, and dude, great workout! Lots of berms, some cool wood bridges, whoop-dee-do section, and the choice of a few small drop offs if you want. Like others have said, great beginner-intermediate track (I saw a couple 8-10 year-olds riding it), but you can also push it and go fast and do the more technical stuff. I plan on coming back very soon. Oh yeah, the first time I didn't see the sign and dirt road on the left side of the road (as you are first approaching it). If you drive to the dead end cul-de-sac, you've gone too far. Turn around and it will be oh, I don't know, 40-50 yards away on the ride side now.

    This is an amazing trail. You can tell that the local bike group really knows what they are doing because this trail has the best flow of any trail I've been on. This trail is good for beginners looking for a fast and fun trail with tons of possibilities to learn and improve. The trails has more then enough technical options that might even be tough for some experienced riders. This is defiantly a great place to practice and improve your skill. I will be going back here very soon.

    Awesome trail. Can be quite technical in spots but it flows really well. A couple of creek crossings and several wooden features. One of the best mountain bike trails in the area,

    Rode this on April 25, 2016. The loop is now open. It is a very well kept up trail with the fewest roots (that I have ridden) in the Triad. There are a few places where you could get technical if you wanted to. There are excellent berms and the manmade obstacles are great. There were 2 spots where the trail split, and I wasn't exactly sure where to go, but they both ended up in the same place, so no worries.

    Fun, fast, quick loop. Excellent signage for a first-time, lone rider! It's a 2-directional trail so you have to look out for oncoming riders. I found going clockwise to be more enjoyable--more opportunities for fast little runs. I wish there were more logs left in place to allow for hopping (with go-arounds for less skilled riders). Great built board sections, too, shows lots of TLC among the local crews. Thanks!

    This work in progress (as of 2015) has a very fun, flowing single track. Once I descended less than a mile to the "loop" I had an ongoing combination of light roots, burrows, little whoop de doos, with the absence of any demanding climb throughout. Depending on which way you begin the loop, you will sooner or later encounter the optional advanced spot with a narrower raised plank path joined by some large stones ending with a nice drop at the end. A really fun set of board work in a few spots with a touch of stone work here and there...I can see this project working into a piece of art...just wish it was longer. However, if you like breaking it up, going alternating directions around the loop before coming back to the beginning of the trail makes for a pretty fun session of single track.

    Short but sweet! not a long trail but set up to be looped to get some miles in. Some technical features but generally mild.

    Very nice trail. About 20 min ride out and back. Great trail work by KCC. Correct address is 925 Smith Edwards Rd. Single tracks gives wrong location.
